We had Hoped: Easter on the Road to Emmaus

Hope can be a fleeting thing. We hope for many things that leave us disappointed. That sends us down wrong roads, trying to make the future out of the past; trying to find hope in things that cannot deliver anything but despair, in the end. Two disciples headed home recalling the past glory of Emmaus, had hoped Jesus was the Messiah only to see that hope crucified on the cross. On the road and in the breaking of the bread, the risen Jesus is revealed, restoring hope. That happens all the time – whenever, in Jesus name, we take, bless, break and give what we have and what we are.
